EasyCall gets NTC nod for Wireles Broadband

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: May 29, 2010

EasyCall announced the other day that it was able to get an NTC license to use the 15MHz of spectrum within the 3.4GHz range. This allows the company to offer wireless broadband services. EasyCall has been offering corporate internet access (DSL, DLL, IDS) for some time now, thru partnerships with various local telcos. EasyCall is formerly paging company (you guys still remember the pager?) that turned into the telco business. The frequency secured by the company will enable it to offer wireless broadband internet. Not sure if they'll expand and offer the service to commercial/residential subscribers but a new broadband

The funny truth about your local Internet Service Provider

Relevance: 95%      Posted on: March 30, 2013

We're pretty sure everyone here has had a bad experience with their local internet service providers. While some continue to agonize with lack of support, intermittent service, or unfulfilled broadband speeds, the rest will just shut up and move on to the next provider. Paying Php999 a month for 1Mbps? That's about Php1.40 per hour for 24/7 each month. Even if your ISP is only giving you 256Kbps from that 1Mbps promise, we don't think they feel they're making any profits from subscribers. Add to that the cost of laying out underground cables to your neighborhood, paying for call center…

The Singapore Zoo

Relevance: 91%      Posted on: May 23, 2007

Someone asked me why I'd always want to go to the zoo whenever I visit a country. Aside from testing my photography skills (or the lack thereof) for wild animal shoots, I wittingly replied "Show me your country's best zoo and I will tell you how well-fed your people are". Just look at how the Manila zoo tigers are so skinny. Here are some of the shots I got using my Canon Rebel XT with the Sigma 70-300mm APO DG-Macro. The animals are between 10 to 20 meters away so a telephoto lens is a must here. The Singapore Zoo…

Sun Cellular Wireless Broadband: Unlimited for Php999!

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: August 7, 2008

Got a tip that the recently announced Sun Cellular Wireless Broadband service will be priced at Php999 per month with unlimited usage. Sun Cellular's 3G will use a similar USB dongle. This is so far the cheapest and only unlimited 3G provider in the Philippines. However, since Sun Cellular has just started rolling out their HSDPA network, 3G coverage will be limited to several areas in Metro Manila.

Globe Broadband Tattoo at 2Mbps

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: February 26, 2009

Okay, I think I spoke too soon. Just got this press release from Globe that they renamed their 3G internet service to Globe Broadband Tattoo. Globe Broadband Tattoo, formerly known as Globe Visibility, uses a USB stick that works as a modem (more like a re-brand of Globe Visibility). Globe has also upgraded their network so users can get speeds of up to 2 Mbps. Globe redesigned Globe Broadband Tattoo with some funky designs featuring artworks in black, orange, or blue. The Globe Broadband Tattoo Prepaid Kit comes with a free Php100 load that is equivalent to five hours of…

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: May 11, 2014

LG Mobile has sent out invitations for what could be the launch of the LG G3 in 6 cities across the globe. The closest regional hub for us is Singapore and we can confirm that it is indeed happening on May 28 (at least in our region). The May 27 launch will happen in San Francisco, New York, and London while the May 28 event is for Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul. We got an invite for the Singapore event on the 28th and the 29th and while there are no specific details yet, we can safely say it will be…

Hosting Provider Accountability

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: January 18, 2006

A story ran on the Inquirer (Inq7.net) about Marine Captain Nicanor Faeldon being virtually untraceable in cyberspace as he is in the jungles of Mindanao (or wherever he really is right now). I would tend to disagree but taking into perspective the expertise of the people in NBI, that might just spell what they can do. What caught my attention though was the line that states "Only the web host could be traced though the Internet service provider could not be asked to divulge the owner of the site, if he is known at all." Is that really true? This…

Sky Broadband offers 5Mbps at Php999

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: March 19, 2011

Sky Broadband is set to launch a new offering for their internet service -- a special broadband plan of (up to) 5Mbps at only Php999 a month with a 15GB cap. Now that looks like a very attractive offer if you're not really a heavy user and don't spend a lot of time surfing at home (mostly people checking emails, FB and Twitter with a little bit of YouTube now and then). Telco insiders are saying that around 80% of broadband users don't really consume more than 15GB of traffic a month, then this alternative plan is for them. If…

Asia Pacific Broadband Penetration

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: May 20, 2007

I previously posted some statistical data on the internet penetration here in the Philippines. Yesterday afternoon, a couple of speakers from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) presented the current status of ICT in Malaysia during our workshop. In that presentation, they also shared research figures of Asia Pacific's broadband penetration. Leading the pack is South Korea and Hong Kong with 75.1 and 74.6 on the total households followed by Japan and Taiwan tied at 58.6, then Australia (50.9), Singapore (44.1) and New Zealand (31.2). At the bottom are the Philippines (1.0), India (0.7) and Indonesia (0.1). View from…
